Gong Xi Fa Cai

 

For Chinese people, Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar.

Gong Xi Fa Cai! That's how people greet one another when they meet their relatives, especially theelderly. Gong Xi Fa Cai itself means, "Congratulations, I wish you prosperity!" In return, the elder ones give "hong bao" to the young people, mostly the kids. Because of the hong bao that they receive and the sparkly traditional Chinese costume that they don, the kids are very excited to celebrate Chinese New Year.

We believe, however, that Chinese New Year is not only about the festive celebration, the "hong bao" and the "cheongsam". It is more about the quality time we spend together with our dear family and friends

May this year bring you more luck and prosperity. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
